Have you ever thought that the videos games that you play as a source of ˜recreation' can actually turn out to be a lucrative career opportunity? Yes, you read it right. And one such man who does so is Tyler Blevins, popularly known as Ninja in the virtual world of gaming. With over 10 million subscribers on YouTube, 6 million followers on Twitch, 3.5 million on Instagram and 1.9 million on Twitter, as of April 2018, we have proof enough that he is by far the one of the biggest names in the social media today. An internet sensation, Blevins has truly turned his skill and passion into a highly-paid career but with a lot of hard work, determination, grit and of course, talent. His handsome income may seem startling considering it is earned just by playing video games, but a lot has been put in by him to become the most popular streamer on Amazon-owned gaming platform Twitch which explains the returns. Having said that, it is surprising to know that Blevins does not promote professional gaming as a viable career path for every kid!
